Erling Haaland injury update

Manchester City will assess Erling Haaland on Thursday as Pep Guardiola refused to rule the striker out of their game with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Haaland missed his first Premier League match of the season at the weekend after picking up a foot injury after the Aston Villa game that left him unable to walk on Thursday. City have said they will have to treat the problem on a day-by-day basis, although were confident that it would not keep him out for too long.

Guardiola said that the striker will be looked over by the medical team ahead of the weekend to see if he has a chance of playing against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

“We will be back Thursday, day after, and we see how he feels,” he said.

“I cannot answer [about Saturday], I don’t know. The next press conference I can be more precise.”
